Hey guys and girls,

going to be moving to Wisconsin and wanted to know what kind of gearing your guys are running in the Midwest.

ill be coming from AZ and were all on 29ers running between 32-18 and 32-20 mostly but I can't imagine that being a great choice...

Thanks!

depends on the course if you want to really have your set-up dialed.

on my 29 i used a 34t ring and rode anything from a 16 - 20 with all cogs in between.

for the wide fast venues like nine mile, i'd use a 16 or 17 - the 2:1 is your "fast gear" for WORS / WEMS. the 16 was for chequamie. if the course was more ski-hill style, i'd probably end up on a 19.

My advice. Don't listen to any gearing recommendations coming from someone with a screen name which consists of any variation of "Ronsta".
